I'm having the same's my trace:

[root at alice source]# nmbd -D; ps axf |grep nmb
 9816  ?  R    0:00 nmbd -D 
 9818  ?  R    0:00  \_ nmbd -D

I suspect this is what's keeping my NT servers from being able to login?

My list subscription hasn't gone through yet, but I'm reading in the
archive...any help would be appreciated.
